Holidays in January (2019 Calendar)

Welcome everybody to the new year. I took a break for the last month so so preparing content for you guys for this year. Last year I did my best to get you two pieces a week, and this year I going to step it up a bit to three. Disclaimer as always: I am a student at university. My school work comes first. That being said, it is the first day of the month, which means that we have an entire month on holidays to talk about. I know I didn’t do one for December, but all of my professors got together and we’re talking about how to make me miserable. I swear. Off of that topic, January is National Soup and Oatmeal Month, so make sure to stock up on hot meals. It is also National Hobby month, so it’s the perfect time to either discover a new hobby or finally invest the time into something that you have been pushing off.
